How the Human Body Works from Richard Byrne


Check out this phenomenal TED-Ed Human Body YouTube playlist from Richard Byrne:

SO many options for use in the Health classroom. How about something as simple as using the question feature in Google Classroom and asking the students to view one of the videos and then add 2 things they learned from watching.

The cool thing about the question feature is that the students cannot see other responses until AFTER they respond.

To extend the lesson, require students to reply to another student's response, expanding on what that student mentioned. This offers great opportunity to discuss appropriate interactions online.

    I saw this Pinterest Board Template by Cynthia Nixon and immediately thought that it could be put to good use in a Health Classroom. Click here: to preview the template. Click the blue "Use Template" button to get your own copy. You can share this template with your students via Google Classroom or a QR code using the same link as I've included above. I'm thinking that pretty much any Health topic could be assigned for use with this template and that makes it SO useful.

    In order to help make the standards and performance indicators a bit more accessible and useful to teachers, we have added the National Health Standards Locator here: With the Locator, you can search by search term, grade level band(s) and standard. Search results are downloadable as a .csv file by clicking the “3 dots” menu in the upper right corner. A great way to use the Locator is to search for a particular term and choose, for example grades K-2 and 3-5. This allows you to see the learning progression and can inform your teaching.
No idea is too small.  Simple things are often the best!
